Welcome to a series of training developed by the National Disability Co-ordination Officer (NDCO) Program and Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET) to explore ‘disability’.

We currently have five e-Learning program sets available:

  • Introduction to Disability Awareness is for individuals to undertake and focuses on promoting an awareness of disability and the impact that societal attitudes and inherent stigma and discrimination have on the lives of people with disability.
  • Orientation for External Support Workers in Tertiary Settings focuses on the roles and responsibilities of workers who are externally employed (paid or unpaid) by individuals and organisations to provide support to students with disability in tertiary settings.
  • VET Sector (Staff and Educators) is designed specifically for staff and educators who work in the VET Sector.
  • UDL in Tertiary Education is for educators and focuses on the principles and practices of Universal Design for Learning in tertiary settings.
  • Online Access for Tertiary Students who are Blind or Vision Impaired is designed for education staff working in the tertiary sector and focuses on a range of practical solutions and strategies to address access barriers experienced by learners who are blind or vision impaired.

These e-Learning program set are free for individuals to undertake online.

The Introduction to Disability Awareness is available to purchase for organisations Learning Management Systems.  Further information on purchasing the Introduction to Disability Awareness e-Learning content files.

Hear from Alastair McEwin, former Australian Disability Discrimination Commissioner, about why it is important to take the time to learn about the issues that people with disability experience. Alastair McEwin is currently a Commissioner at the Disability Royal Commission.
